|understand everything about it, but while watching the movie, "Left Behind," it was clear to me that I had to try. So, here I am on Christmas Eve, the eve of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that I, Al Colombo, an alias to 'whom' and 'what' I really am, am willfully sitting at my desk writing something that I never thought I'd put into print for public consumption.
Before we proceed into this extremely deep subject, let me explain to you why I'm a good fit for explaining this to you. I know there are those asking themselves "What makes this man qualified to even broach this subject?" Here the reason:
It's simple: I have a lifetime of OBE experiences starting in the crib.
OBE is a form of autoscopy (literally "seeing self"), although the term autoscopy more commonly refers to the pathological condition of seeing a second self, or doppelgänger.
Pre Event Discussion
For example, in or about 1971, at the age of 21, I experienced an electrical shock of approximately 180,000 VAC by way of an X-Ray transformer designed to output 90,000 VAC. I was an X-Ray head repair technician for Weber Dental in Canton, Ohio, at the time. I was in my basement working on my workbench when the mistake took place (no, I was not at work, working on an X-Ray head).
When I came to, I was hardly able to breath and it took me 20 minutes or more to gather the strength to get up off the floor 20 feet from my work bench. An AEP lineman, a friend, told me that I had experience death and that it was the fall to the concrete floor that revived my heart. It took me 20 minutes to oxygenate my body because I had been dead for a short time.
The Power of OM/Aum
There was a tremendous vibration that ebbed and coursed through me at the time as I regained consciousness, the same vibration that I experience when I go out of body. That vibration is none other than OM, also known as Aum (I spoke of this in my Oct. 1, 2018 blog post, entitled Revealing the Hidden Things or Coming Out of the Closet. I also spoke of OM/Aum in my Oct. 7, 2018 blog entry entitled Where to Find Om.
Listen, this blog post is going to take me some time to assemble, and it's not going to take place today. Most likely it won't be completed even in two parts because there's SO VERY MUCH to share with you about it. But in the process of telling you about OBE's, I'll also be explaining the Big Picture and our place in it, at least a good portion of it.
If you know of someone who's interested in this kind of thing, here's a shortened link to give them that will enable them to read it for themselves: http://bit.ly/2QOB0PG
So, without further ado? "Have a Merry Christmas," and look for my part 2 next week!
(Revised 3/19/19 @ 18:45 ET)
As I sit in retirement, working nonetheless at building a business I’ve actually had and worked part time since 1995, I can’t help but feel out of touch, out of sorts, off center, as if I’d fallen off a horse and failed to jump back on. And yet, if you were to call me up (330-956-9003) and ask me what day it is, I’ll be quite able to tell you (today’s the 10th of December, 2018). That’s better than my wife who retired in 2016. Despite the fact that she comes and goes, is a member of several community organizations, she usually has to look at her cell phone to see what the date is.
And yet, I’m dogged with this feeling of societal disconnect.
When you consider the fact that I’m no longer getting up each day and running out the door to a 9-to-5 job, it’s probably easy to see why I feel disconnected. I’m use to working hard and long each day. And now, even though I work hard and long for myself, I’m no longer in an office environment where I’m eye-to-eye with others.
We all say retirement is great, but for many of us it’s not. But I’m learning to enjoy some of the freedoms that it provides. Now, instead of dividing my time between a full-time job, managing someone else’s business, I can manage my own.
It’s different for sure.
Assignment: Those of you who are already retired, how are you dealing with the idle time it presents? Those of you who are still a ways from the "big dive," what do you plan to do to stay busy? Feel free to comment below, use the contact form on the left, or send me your thoughts by email--let’s chat about it a bit.--Al Colombo
